This Monkey Business Deluxe mobile slot may look like it’s got lots of good features, but a closer glance will show you that this little ape is up to no good.
Monkey Business Deluxe is a 5 reel 3 row 20 betline video slot machine with wild, expanded wilds, scatters, free spins and multipliers.
Monkey business is another way of saying “mischievous or deceitful behaviour”. Well, this Monkey Business slot isn’t that deceitful, because you only have to look at the paytable and it tells you straight to your face that it’s not going to pay out.
You need a five of a kind win with the Ace to 10 symbols just to get your bet back. That’s pretty poor returns. But, to give it the benefit of the doubt, those are the low paying symbols, right? Surely there is more to be gained if you catch a lion or a wild as a five of a kind?
Sure there is. 12 times your bet. Congrats, you can now buy yourself a couple of Happy Meals from McDonald’s.
It should work. You get expanded wilds on every reel, as well as a normal wild so you don’t feel like this symbol is all that rare.
You get multipliers during your 10 free spins. 3 scatters give you 2x multiplier, 4 scatters 3x multiplier and 5 scatters a 4x multiplier.
Which makes the top win on a single payline 50 times your bet, and just about on par with other slot games online.
You even get multipliers during the base game when the monkey symbol shows up, so all is not lost. It’s just that by the time you find this out, you’ve been slowly losing money and your mind.
This Blueprint Gaming slot isn’t helped by the fact that the theme is just awful. It looks like it was created sometime around the 90s when people were just figuring out how to use paint to create cartoons.
But yes, there are two decent sized in-game jackpots – one that has to trigger before it reaches 3,500 and the other has to be won by the time it gets to 35,000. There is something refreshing about a jackpot slot machine that tells you the best time to play.
So a good jackpot gives this another star for those of you who are just jackpot slot hunters and nothing else. However, if you like a chance at winning within the game itself and not just a one in a million chance jackpot go elsewhere.
The Gorilla Go Wilder slot machine by NextGen perhaps?

Wilds: The Red Wild can be used to substitute for any other symbol to create a winning payline.
Golden Expanding Wild: The Golden Wild symbol will expand to cover the whole reel wherever it lands.
Monkey Free Spin Bonus: 3 or more scatters (the adventurer in the hat) will trigger 10 free spins. Depending on how many scatters you trigger the bonus with, depends on the multiplier during the whole of the bonus game.
Monkey Multiplier Bonus: Any Monkey symbol on the reels will award a multiplier of x2, x3, or x4 any wins during that spin or that feature.
How to win the Jackpot: At any point during your spin, you can trigger a mini-game where you collect crowns for multipliers. The higher you go, the bigger the multiplier, but than also you get to the wheel Kings for huge wins and a chance at the progressive jackpot.
The Jackpot King seeds at 5,000 in cash, whilst the Royal Pot seeds at 500 in cash.
We like the idea of the mechanics behind this Monkey Business Deluxe slot on mobile.
Expanding wilds, multipliers, free spins... all tick boxes that should work. However the paytable leaves us feeling just a little but empty, as you need a 4x multiplier and a 5 of a kind win just to get anywhere.
The real money jackpots are decent and when they are ready to burst, at least you'll just be losing slowly rather than quickly thanks to lots of little wins. But it's still losing, at the end of the day.
This is for jackpot hunters only, when the progressive is about to hit. Meanwhile, if Monkeys are your thing, the Play'n GO Banana Rock slot is well worth check out, as is 7 Monkeys by Pragmatic Play.
